Fun for a Fiver in London

3 based on 3 ratings & 0 reviews on


London has a reputation for being one of the most expensive cities in the world, but in fact it's packed with things to do for less than £5 - and many of these are absolutely free.

This book lists hundreds of things to do and places to see, and many of them give a better glimpse into the history of the capital and the way it really works today than many of the more obvious tourist destinations. Around 70 subject sections cover parks, museums, annual events, food, drink, a selection of walks, music and other free entertainment venues, special seasonal happenings, and so on. There is a geographical index for easy planning, and suggested itineraries for eg a family day in the East End, Greenwich, looking at city churches, places associated with royalty, etc.

Indispensable for tourist and London resident alike!
